EfficientGrip Performance


195/55 R16 H (87)

Goodyear have constructed the EfficientGrip Performance with 'ActiveBraking Technology' which increases the level of contact between the tread and road surface. This technology leads to greater levels of traction and shorter braking distances - internal tests carried out by Goodyear have shown this has reduced braking distances by up to 8 metres on wet roads.

The tyre also features Goodyear's 'WearControl Technology' to ensure that the tyre has a low level of rolling resistance. Not only does this help to save fuel, but it also means the tyre wears evenly throughout its lifespan.

To lower the levels of rolling resistance of the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance, a newly designed base compound has been created that reduces the resistance of the tyre by up to 18% compared to previous models.

In 2014 the tyre was named 'Best Buy' by Auto Express and in the Which? tyre tests.


Customer Comments

  • Overall very satisfied with the performance of the tyre. Also fitted it to an Astra 1.9 CDTI and noted an improvement in overall driving performance in terms of mileage and economy. One slight concern is that the tyre might be more susceptible to side wall damage cause by kerbing. I have had two front tyres, both Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 195/55 R16 H fitted to the Corsa in recent years, that have been written off by kerbing and have shown an identical damage pattern.

  • Exactly mirror the ratings, with exceptional control in the wet.

  • My car seems to accelerate in the direction I ask it to! When I turn the wheel, it also turns in that direction! 10/10 would definitely buy tyres for my car again, much better than running on alloys.

  • Quiet and they look good

  • Good. Nice and quiet
